First off, I would like to thank EVERYONE on this forum (especially Glen E & Elegant) who helped me through the complex, yet exhilarating process of purchasing my new C7!

I took delivery from my local dealer on Friday night and unfortunately I had to head out of town on Saturday morning for my girlfriend's best friend's wedding shower. Thankfully I will be able to start driving my baby tomorrow!!

I've included some initial pics and I promise to include much better, higher resolution photos in the near future once I have the car coated with XPEL and CQuartz.

Here are my planned purchases over the next few weeks:

(1) Carbon fiber license plate frame (or something else that looks good WITHOUT dealer advertising)
(2) Lloyd's mats
(3) Cargo shade
(4) Splash guards (mud flaps)
(5) XPEL & CQuartz
(6) I may exchange the front grill for the Z06 grill

Cheers everyone!

Josh

We've had a week stretch of rainy weather here in Charleston so I had yet to experience my C7 with the top stowed until this afternoon. I got called by one of my partners to cover her late shift tonight so I used the opportunity to experience my C7 in targa form. Please excuse the car if there are any blemishes, I have yet to give her a proper bath.

I have to say that I am completely satisfied with my purchase and I have no regrets on any of my options. As some of you may know I was very close to pulling the trigger on a more "practical" car - an M3 or Range Rover Sport - but I am so glad I followed my instincts and listened to all of your advice.

I can't say I have any real complaints about the car - I do have some minor suggestions for GM on future models - but fundamentally this car is just unbelievable. NRB Coupe.jpg

I noticed you had blue carpets, but I thought I had seen a Brownstone interior in a NRB that had Brown carpets..??? Did not think there was a carpet color option so maybe I am in la la land....

Factory carpets are black and I ordered Lloyd's mats with the Corvette flags logo which are black as well. I think this color contrasts very well against Kalahari.

I also ordered a pure carbon fiber license plate frame from RPI last week which looks fantastic.

I just wanted to give a quick plug for Seat Armour Seat Towels - which are sold by one of our sponsoring vendors, Southern Car Parts (which is a fantastic company by the way).

I was looking for a cheap, low-tech solution for protecting my C7's seats after a trip to the gym or beach. The Seat Armour Towels slide over the seats like a bib and are machine-washable. Just used them after a few hours of tennis with the girlfriend. Highly recommend them! 55 bucks for two towels. IMG_1962.JPG

Just saw this thread Joshua. You obviously have good taste. Love the color combo-it is exactly the combination that I will order when I get there. But with red calipers. Otherwise identical. -Bob

Thanks Warp Ten and congrats on getting close to placing your order!I'm about 850 miles in and I love my night race blue coupe. Let me know if you have any questions on accessories, etc.
